COLUMBUS—State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) applauded the passage of Senate Bill 9 (SB 9) by the Ohio House of Representatives.  The bill would create a sales tax holiday during the first weekend of August in 2017.


SB 9 would establish Ohio’s third annual sales tax holiday to be held August 4th, 5th, and 6th. The legislation exempts the purchase of clothing, school supplies, and instructional materials from the sales and use tax during the weekend. Items of clothing are given a limit of up to $75 each while school supplies and materials have a limit of $20 each.


“The legislature has found these sales tax holidays to be a great tool in helping families across Ohio in ensuring their kids are prepared for the new school year,” said Rep. Anielski. “I am proud to have supported the bill in the past and the current Sales Tax Holiday.”


Ohio’s sales tax holiday falls during the peak of back-to-school shopping, helping families save money on certain purchases to get their children started off on the right foot at the beginning of the school year. According to the Economics Center of the University of Cincinnati, consumers saved approximately $3.3 million in taxes during the 2015 sales tax holiday. Additionally, overall retail sales in Ohio increased by over six percent during August 2015, subsequently contributing to the state’s economy.
